Day 21 of my recent 30 Day Thankfulness Challenge; I am thankful for Servicemen and Women .  😀

On Remembrance Day I wrote a piece in honor of all their service for our country. However I would like to repeat some of those thoughts again here in my 30 Day Thankfulness Challenge.

I truly am thankful and feel I am ultimately blessed because of the sacrifice of so many women and men who gave their lives willingly for our freedom.   

I am so thankful to my brothers, nephews, cousins, uncles, great uncles and aunts and friends that went to war, peacekeeping and other duties to keep us safe. Their untold stories are our public privileges. God Bless Them eVery oNe!

The after effects of these brave soldiers have been traumatic for many of them. Others never came home.

Let’s keep our country safe. I hear too many stories of soldiers coming home to nothing but pain, sorry and poverty. This is just not good enough. Many have come back suffering with PTS and other serious problems.

May we not see any soldier in need and without warmth and love and shelter and food and anything they may need. Let’s find ways to look after them in their need at home.

They went with songs to the battle, they were young. Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow. They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted, They fell with their faces to the foe. They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old: Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them. Lest we Forget

“You may think the President is all powerful, but he is not. He needs a lot of guidance from the Lord.” ~ Barbara Bush

Iregardless of our views on wars and the reasons of wars; the fact remains soldiers serve their country.
